ST JOHN’S, Antigua, Friday January 19, 2018 – LIAT has announced the appointment of Rojer Inglis as chief financial officer.
He replaces Julie Reifer-Jones who assumed the office of chief executive officer last year. His appointment took effect from January 8.
Reifer-Jones, who is now chief executive officer of the Antigua-based airline, said Inglis is an asset to the company.
“We are looking forward to working with Mr Inglis at LIAT as he brings a wealth and variety of financial experience to the company, especially at this time when the airline industry is undergoing rapid changes,” she said.
Prior to joining LIAT, Inglis, who is a Chartered Certified Accountant with membership of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), worked for over 30 years in senior financial and leadership positions.
He was the chief financial officer of National Health Insurance Plan, Turks and Caicos and has held positions at WASA St Lucia and Cable & Wireless Barbados Ltd.
Inglis said he is looking forward to his role in helping the company as it works towards financial stability and sustainability.
LIAT’s management also expressed its gratitude to Andrea James who acted in the position of chief financial officer for the period of vacancy.
“Mrs James, through her leadership of the finance department, was able to help us navigate some very turbulent times while the search for a chief financial officer took place,” noted Reifer-Jones.
